Fortune Teller by Leo Herrera tells 50 years of Faggotry in 5 minutes

Just in time for Pride!

The Fortune Teller is a film by gay artist/activist Leo Herrera,
chronicling milestones and icons of the modern gay man. The story is
told through the trance of The Fortune Teller (played by Stanley Frank)
and created using archival and modern footage. The film is a documentary
and time capsule, paying homage to psychedelic films of the 1960′s and
the modern art of the YouTube Montage film. From Mapplethorpe to
Lohanthony, Uganda to Burning Man, Vogue to Sissy Bounce, AIDS to The
Berlin Patient, meticulously edited clips create a kaleidoscopic
five-minute journey through more than 50 years of gay history. See the
“The Fortune Teller” decoded for a visual legend to the clips.

 “The Fortune Teller” is comprised of 50 years of imagery
and footage. The 5-minute clip took six months to film and assemble, and
is made up of 100 carefully selected clips. The style is a take on Lana
Del Rey’s “Video Games” video, or The Scissor Sister’s “Let’s Have a
KiKi”. It also pays homage to some of our modern day gay “preachers,”
such as Chris Crocker or Lohanthony, or Kid Fury, who, as we always
have, developed ways to use technology to reach one another.
